Modern Steel Road Bike Appreciation Thread

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

But I can tell you that if you haven't ridden a steel bike with a longer wheelbase that fits 32's then you don't know what you're missing, especially on chipseal roads. It's more practical, handling is more stable, more fun and just plain sweet. The 25's I have on all my other bikes just don't seem as cool anymore. Now I'm lusting after one of these and may have one before long:

Are those Velo Orange Crand Cru rim brakes?

This bike should not go unacknowledged.

Really nice. Congratulations. Truly a beautiful, classic looking bike. Well done.

This should be posted in the Hot r' Not thread. It would put many carbon bikes to shame.

LOVE this thread. So many nice bikes here.

I've posted this one in C&V but will be doing a modern build.
Chorus grouppo, record hubs and Archetype rims in transit from Chain Reaction Cycles.......
Sapim CX-Ray spokes and hex alloy nipples in transit....
Frame somewhere between Warsaw, Poland and here......

I look forward to this build. 62.5 x 60 c-c frame made with EL-OS tubing, 1990 model, according to the man himself (sent info to Zullo)

Second photo is the direction I'm headed with it, on a similar frame

Here's my Ritchey Road Logic 2.0. Been riding it as my primary road bike for the last 4 seasons. It will need a bit of a refresh this winter - the bars need to be replaced - and it will probably get some new (lighter) wheels, but I'm planning on it being back as my primary road bike next year.

VERY HOT! Was considering that exact frame, especially since it's a bargain with the CAD/USD conversion...

The Soma Pesadero is intriguing. It has a "sport" geometry but set up for Paul center mount brakes (or dual pivot) and will fit a 40c tire. It'd look nice with a silver Potenza group, silver Paul brakes and Soma 38c tanwalls.
